About Richard Price View Profile

Richard Price is the author of the acclaimed Lucky Day, Moon for Sale, and the prize-winning Small World (all Carcanet). He recently published a book of essays on poetry, small presses, and artist’s books, Is This A Poem? (Molecular Press). “Poets have to be linguistic virtuosi, but I prefer them to be brilliant quietly. Richard Price’s poetry is inventive, sometimes dazzling, but never merely showy.” – Carol Rumens, The Guardian

'The supportive staff at the Poetry School have been very helpful and transparent when it comes to applying and finding ways to make tuition affordable. Richard Price has been invaluable to this group of student poets--primarily in making them feel they and their work are valuable. A real community has taken shape among members of this course thanks to the egalitarian and celebratory nature of Richard's workshop. Richard also presses poets to find clearer ways of giving feedback, which ultimately means more precise ways of thinking. Thank you, Richard and the Poetry School!'
